Cher Shares the Scoop on Her New TCM Co-hosting Gig
When it comes to old movies, don't mess with Cher. The Oscar-winning uber-diva and passionate film buff is helping Turner Classic Movies launch its new weekly film series Friday Night Spotlight (8/7c), which kicks off this week. Each month will showcase a different theme and guest co-host. First up is A Woman's World: The Defining Era of Women in Film, a collection of 17 classic movies — handpicked by Cher — that illustrates the evolving roles of women from the late 1930s to the early 1950s. Among them: Stella Dallas, Mildred Pierce, Bachelor Mother, So Proudly We Hail, The Devil in Miss Jones and the 1946 Best Picture Oscar winner The Best Years of Our Lives. (For a full list go to tcm.com). Cher and TCM host Robert Osborne will talk shop and intro the films, which air in four categories — Motherhood (April 5), War Effort and the Homefront (April 12), Working Women (April 19) and Women Taking Charge (April 26). TV Guide Magazine rang Cher to talk about her obsession with the golden age of Hollywood and to find out — if she could turn back time — which long-gone leading man she'd most like to costar with. You'll never guess.
